Gluttony: A Sin Common to Modern Life

gluttony

“Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty”
–Proverbs 23:20-21

Gluttony (or over-eating), like pride, is a common behavior in the modern world.

But it is still a sin.

Gluttony is not eating to appease hunger. Gluttony is over-eating and eating for eating sake; for pleasure.

In the times in which we now live, gluttony is encouraged; particularly at “all you can eat” establishments.

In the times in which we now live, gluttony is considered a sinful behavior by very few.

Pill to switch off hunger possible – So what?  Many people eat for a lot of reasons besides hunger.

In America, hunger is the least of these reasons.

“(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)”
–Philippians 3:18-19

Some of the reasons people eat in America besides hunger:

  1. Boredom
  2. Because it’s free
  3. Socializing
  4. As a coping mechanism
  5. Routine/Habit
  6. Tastes good
  7. Herd mentality
  8. To celebrate
  9. To please others

And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting [over-eating], and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.”
–Luke 21:34-35

IS the reader guilty of over-eating?

IS the reader guilty of gluttony?

THERE is still time to change directions (repent) and call upon the name of the LORD.

Is your calling and election sure?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
